4. WeVideo

For those who have already heard about WeVideo as a video editing app, you'll probably agree that it's one of the most popular web apps available for free.

6. YouTube Video Editor

By far, this is the most powerful tool that you can use for both Windows OS and Chrome OS. It's an editor that allows you to edit videos right from the page on YouTube. You can also add timelines, effects, transition, and crop the parts that you don't want to show.

  • It has a wide range of creative commons for you to search, edit, remix, and so on.
  • Drag and drop feature.
  • Direct upload once you're done editing.

Not Worth The Visit
"Let's make a post of 6 free editing softwares for chromebook users." #1 isn't for chromebooks. #2 isn't for chromebooks. #3 isn't for chromebooks. #4 isn't free. #5 shut down 5 years ago. #6 shut down less than two months after the post. "Yummy ad revenue!" (I've never been more glad to use an adblocker.)
If people are having serious complaints about it not being on chromebook, just know that it clearly states it is not a supported platform. I have no other information on this other than I love to see people argue and complain. Do you have a problem with that?
Amen, a thousand times ! And knock it off wioth the phone only apps..some of us don't use the danged things !!
